CREEP RATE AND CREEP STRENGTH OF CLAYS

NEW TYPE OF DATA ON THE CREEP RATE OF CLAYS ARE PRESENTED. A SERIES OF SPECIAL DRAINED CREEP TESTS, DURING WHICH A WATER CONTENT IS PRACTICALLY MAINTAINED CONSTANT, ARE PERFORMED ON THE NORMALLY CONSOLIDATED AND OVER CONSOLIDATED CLAY SAMPLES HAVING THE SAME INITIAL WATER CONTENT. AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO CORRELATE BOTH SHEAR AND NORMAL EFFECTIVE STRESSES TO THE RATE OF CREEP STRAIN. THE TIME-DEPENDENT CHANGES IN STRENGTH OF CLAYS ARE INVESTIGATED. THE DATA ON THE CREEP STRENGTH OR YIELD VALUE OBTAINED BY THE LONG-TERM DRAINED AND UNDRAINED CREEP STRENGTH TESTS ARE PRESENTED. THESE DATA ARE ANALYZED ON THE BASIS OF EFFECTIVE STRESS CONCEPT, AND THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE YIELD VALUE OF CLAYS IN TERMS OF EFFECTIVE STRESS ARE STUDIED. /AUTHOR/
